A River's Tale : Cambodia
Description: A young girl and her family on the back of a make shift trailer on the road that leads to Kbal Romeas. The village is home to 136 Bunong families, the majority of whom are animists - though the influence of Cambodian Buddhism is beginning to integrate into the community. The Bunong are an ethnic minority tribe who inhabit parts of northeastern Cambodia, and rely heavily on natural resources to sustain their community. The community is self sustaining, and does not need to purchase any food, other than salt and spices. The Sesan II dam, if built, will displace multiple minority tribes, as well as substantially impact their ability to farm and fish. The community is currently divided; roughly half the villagers have accepted a resettlement compensation package, while the other half staunchly refuses to leave their land.
